This is in accordance with Article 144 (3) of the constitution.

The nomination was done by the Minister of Justice and Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame in a letter to the Chief Justice, Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah, sighted by DGN Online but the President is, however, yet to make a formal declaration on it.

However, a section of the public is wondering why some National Democratic Congress (NDC) members are politicising the list as some of the judges in the list such as Her Ladyship Afia Serwaa Botwe J was the judge who acquitted and discharged Mahama Ayariga together with six others when Martin Amidu was the Special Prosecutor and sent them to court in the ambulance procurement case in 2021.

Also, His Lordship Francis Obiri J somewhere in July 2015, delivered a judgment on one Charles Antwi who was arrested for carrying a gun to the church of President Mahama and was reported to have confessed that he wanted to kill the President.
